So Is Any Marriage Made In Heaven?

compatibilty-300x268Are any marriages really made in heaven? From my experience counseling many couples over the years I have found that there are two factors for creating a healthy and long-lasting marriage, or business partnership. The first is compatibility. Without enough compatibility between two people the marriage or partnership will always fail. The thinking processes will be too different for it to last. The second is possessing relationship skills, a big part of which is empathy, consideration and a willingness to listen to your partner when he or she speaks (not just sometimes, but all of the time) and to work through challenges as a team.
With both of those factors in place a marriage, or business partnership, will work. As a matter of fact it was proven that the old type of traditional arranged marriages, as always used to take place in India, had a far greater success rate than so-called “love marriages” anywhere else in the world. Until the late 20th century divorce was so rare in India that couples really and truly lived the words, which we utter in the west as marriage vows, “until death do us part”. But what was it that made so many Indian arranged marriages work out in the past, as opposed to those in the US? It’s such an important topic that even Oprah Winfrey once devoted a show to it. Their considerations went far deeper than the rest of the world when it came to choosing a life partner. Far deeper than anyone could possibly know without the aid of a divine science, and that science was and still is Vedic Astrology.
When we use a horoscope for matching a prospective couple we can see right away if there is enough compatibility for the marriage to be successful. Not only that, but we can look at the future career and social statuses of the couple, as well. So many marriages break up because of arguing about money, or because they can’t stand particular actions of their partner any longer. This kind of primary consideration before marriage can save a lot of tears, heartache and money, for that matter. No matter how good it felt at the time, would you still marry someone if you knew it wasn’t going to last, that you or the other person was going to change irrevocably?

Already Married? Not Too Late!

Having in depth readings of your own horoscopes, and then having an experienced and knowledgeable Vedic astrologer help you both understand each other better may well be what you need to turn things around at home.
I’ve counseled many people using Vedic Astrology in the past 30 plus years and I can tell you honestly that we’re not all that different from each other. Everyone simply wants to feel happy, or satisfied with life, and most importantly we cannot live without sharing love with others. Take a little puppy, put him in a room alone with lots of toys, food, water and treats, but nobody to share love with…and he will wither and die.
We are not just seekers of sensual pleasures, as we are trained by society to think. We are really seeking love above all else, and when we find that state of being called love…we never want it to end.
And what of the pain of dealing with a love lost. No other event in life causes us such deep emotional anguish as does divorce or losing a loved one at the time of their death. The latter is a natural part of life, but divorce is not. Therefore it behooves us to do our best to insure that our marriages and partnerships will succeed.
Marriage is one of the singly most important events in any person’s life. As the consequences of an uninformed decision going into marriage can spell disaster, it only makes sense that we should try to understand as much as possible about ourselves, and our prospective partner, before we take the plunge. We can then better create the strong foundation necessary for a happy, and prosperous business relationship, or both.
